Even though the rumor mill has revealed the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone through grainy leaked shots and videos, we are yet to see a clear press render that shows off the appearance of the highly anticipated flagship phone. Fresh posters of the black and white color variants of the Mi 8 fitted with a tempered glass have surfaced on SlashLeaks. The new images reveal the front and rear design of the alleged Xiaomi Mi 8 phone.
In the new images, the Xiaomi Mi 8 can be seen sporting black front for both black and white variants. The handset can be seen sporting a wider notch that is speculated to house the complex 3D facial recognition feature.
The chin of the device appears to be a bit thick compared to thin bezels available on the sides of the display. The backside of the phone features a vertical dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner. The bottom edge of the phone seems to feature a USB-C port and a speaker grille.
There is no confirmation on the authenticity of the above images. The image showing the black Mi 8 appears like a photoshopped version of the iPhone X. Hence, it is advisable to digest the report with a grain of salt.
Through recent leaks it has been revealed that the Mi 8 could be sporting an OLED panel and it will be fueled by Snapdragon 845. It may feature up to 6 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of native storage. For photography, it may feature 20-megapixel f/1.7 aperture + 16-megapixel f/2.0 aperture dual camera setup and f/2.0 aperture 16-megapixel front-facing camera.
It is being speculated that the Mi 8 would be a regular flagship phone with 3D facial scanner and rear-mounted fingerprint reader. Rumors have it that the special edition of Mi 8 SE could be an advanced phone feature 3D facial scanner as well as under display fingerprint reader. The Mi 8 SE is also expected to house a larger display than the Mi 8.
